Fenimore Cooper’s Literary Offenses

My first-ever full audiobook.

Mark Twain wrote this satirical exposé in 1895, roasting his fellow author Fenimore Cooper upon numerous crimes against the literary arts. So thorough and dismissive is the judgement Twain rains down upon Cooper that I could hardly read through this piece without completely breaking down into uncontrollable mirth. It remains one of my all-time favorite pieces of satire.
